Fare Well Diner, an all vegan restaurant from the makers of Sticky Fingers Bakery, said hello to the DC scene in mid-2016. The cuisine is modeled after casual New York eateries, with a range of comfort food dishes. The menu includes everything from standard mains like Burgers and Pierogis to modernized small plates like Buffalo Cauliflower Dip and Polenta Fries.
Though the 46-seat establishment is somewhat intimate, Fare Well Diner serves breakfast (all day), lunch and dinner (with a “Happiest Happy Hour” from 4 to 7 pm). It also houses a full cocktail bar, bakery, and coffee counter.
The menus focus on house-made items with from-scratch nut-based cheeses, pastas, and an array of baked goods. When grabbing your morning coffee you can get a number of treats to go, including fresh pastries, croissants, and various breads.
And since two of the Farewell Diner founders are two-time champions of Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, dessert is readily available. Daily offerings include shortcake, brownie sundaes, and seasonal crisp a la mode. They even sell whole cakes, like Cookie Dough Cake and the Ginger Lemon Cake, shown here.
For special diet needs beyond vegan, Fare Well Diner does their best to accommodate. In fact, their menu includes notations next to items that are nut-free, soy-free, wheat-free, or have a wheat-free option available.
